Hi Theo I am an NQT currently in my 2nd term of teaching, I completed my training last summer. Without getting into the ins and outs of it, is it realistically possible for me to be out there looking for a new post this September, in a similar year group? My theory is that I will be hindered by this... "Why exactly are you leaving the school after less than a year?" - I mean, I am an NQT so I don't really have a leg to stand on here, can I really get into the details about it? - I don't agree with the schools assessment policy, I don't agree with the way the TAs are taught to intervene way above their level, I don't think the school will go from good to outstanding? That's all a bit much for an NQT isn't it? Won't any recruiting head say (or at least think) that I need to just keep my head down for another year and stop thinking in too much detail about things like this? I really want to move, but is it going to actually be a bad career move? Any advice is welcome. Thanks Sfm.
